Rood & Riddle to offer hospital services as well as expanded ambulatory services in Wellington

Wellington, Fla. - Feb. 18, 2016 - Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital has expanded its veterinary services in Wellington. Rood & Riddle purchased an equine hospital and adjacent property on South Shore Blvd. formerly used by Wellington Equine Associates.

Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Wellington will be Rood & Riddle’s second clinical venture outside the state of Kentucky. It established a practice in Saratoga, NY in 2013.

Rood & Riddle has also acquired one-third of Advanced Equine Imaging, located on the Wellington property in a partnership with Brendan Furlong, MVB, MRCVS, and John Steele, DVM. Advanced Equine Imaging offers services in MRI and nuclear scintigraphy.

Board-certified surgeons Jose Bras, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, and Jen Jordan, VMD, Dipl. ACVS, will be the surgeons on-call at the clinic. Ashley Embly, DVM, and Jen Jordan, VMD, Dipl. ACVS, are currently providing ambulatory services in Wellington. Podiatry and shoeing services will be offered on a monthly basis. Steve Reed, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, will provide internal medicine services bimonthly. Future plans call for the addition of more veterinarians and technicians to staff the hospital.

Rood & Riddle CEO Bill Rood said, “Rood & Riddle is very pleased to establish a hospital presence in Wellington, which is a major center for sport horse activities. Our mission has always been to provide the best care for our clients and patients wherever they are. Wellington is a focal point for sport horse activities and in addition, is conveniently located to major Thoroughbred and Standardbred training centers and racetracks. The addition of the Wellington property will allow us to better serve our many clients who compete in Florida every year, both with sport horses and in racing.”

In recent years, Florida has seen large increases in the sport horse disciplines and continues to maintain a strong race horse industry. In response to an increase of Kentucky clients showing and racing horses in Florida, Rood & Riddle acquired the surgery center, which will be open year-round and will provide ambulatory services during the show season months.

“We are excited to expand our services to the Wellington area. This will allow us to better serve our sport horse and racing clients in South Florida,” said managing partner Scott Pierce, DVM.
